After yesterday's incident vs. the Packers, Ndamukong Suh would only apologize to his teammates, coaches, and true fans "for allowing the refs to have an opportunity to take [him] out of the game." It was that reaction, a lack of accountability, that led many to believe Suh was delusional and more prone to a greater suspension. Suh has corrected that mistake tonight with a statement released on his Facebook page:
In the past few hours, I have had time to reflect on yesterday’s game and I want to sincerely apologize for letting my teammates down, the organization, and especially to my fans who look to me for positive inspiration.
Playing professional sports is not a game. It is a profession with great responsibility, and where performance on and off the field should never be compromised. It requires a calm and determined demeanor, which cannot be derailed by the game, referee calls, fans or other players.
I want to reiterate my commitment to working to become a better player, and professional—on and off the field. My reaction on Thursday was unacceptable. I made a mistake, and have learned from it. I hope to direct the focus back to the task at hand — by winning.
Again, the NFL is reviewing the situation and will have a response likely by Tuesday, after all of the Week 12 games are complete.
